Better than the Polar Express in my opinion which was an interesting take on Santa and his gifting process.
In The Stranger, you enter a world that is both familiar and strange. A typical, cozy country/farming setting and the people who inhabit it are changed forever by a man who does not belong and yet does in an unexpected, beautiful way.
The glorious pictures will entice you to reread it. But more than that, you will wish to have experienced it for yourself with the characters in the story.
This is another of
Chris Van Allsburg's books that I love as an adult. It needs help with a lot of inference for younger children, about what the author is really trying to say. Here, the stranger is a magical, mysterious character who brings the start of autumn. Gorgeous illustrations!
I really like Chris van Allsburg's books!
